The forward unit doesn’t look as daunting without the legendary Teemu Selanne or Saku Koivu, but it is time for the young guns to step up.  Silfverberg, Smith-Pelly and Etem are all on the rise.  Heatley is a puzzling addition and will be interesting to watch and see what he does in this lineup.   Kesler was the major add in the off-season. The Ducks have over $33M committed to their forwards, before current restricted free agent Smith-Pelly re-signs.
